is it easy to remove, and is it really better to use glass over plastic which is very easy to remove and install?
Following the manufacturer's instructions, it is relatively easy and safe to remove the glass screen protector. There are pros and cons to both plastic screen protectors and glass screen protectors. Plastic screen protectors tend to be cheaper in cost, they are also typically thinner, more durable and able to absorb harder impacts, and in some cases, can be reusable. The negatives are that plastic screen protectors show scratches easier, often show fingerprints, can slightly detract from the screen's image quality, and may not offer 100% screen coverage (especially on curved screens) and are not as smooth as glass when tracking your finger across the screen. They can also be notorious for being difficult to install correctly, and can leave small bubbles between the screen protector and your LCD screen.
Glass screen protectors are strong, but as they are manufactured from glass, in certain situations, the screen protector can still crack (though this is much better than cracking your camera's LCD screen). Glass screen protectors can also be slightly thicker compared to plastic protectors and have a raised feel. That being said, glass screen protectors are typically sturdier compared to plastic screen protectors, are less prone to leave fingerprints, have a smoother feel when sliding your finger across the screen, often can provide the same amount of clarity as seen when not using a screen protector, is easy to clean, are less prone to scratching, and while they are often shatterproof, if the protector does break, it often breaks in small chunks and the broken pieces are kept in place without harming the camera's LCD screen, and is easy to install and remove.
